English term or phrase: milling stars
They watched the moon and the milling stars through the rectangle of sky beyond the window frame
Tamara Vlahovic Sanovic
rojevi/roj zvijezda/; zvijezde koje su vrvile/milile
Explanation:

rekla bih da je ovo izvedeno od

to mill = vrvjeti, miljeti ( naokolo) ( R. Filipović)

npr. zvijezde koje su vrvile okolo / rojenje zvijezda i sl.

radi ritma, radije biram kraću varijantu "rojevi zvijezda", nego npr. zvijezde koje su se kretale kao u mlinu, u roju, ili neku drugu dužu frazu
